Hot Chocolate, also known as Chocolate Tea, drinking chocolate or just cocoa is a heated beverage consisting of shaved chocolate, melted chocolate or cocoa powder, heated milk or water, and usually taste sweet.
You might thinking of a drink that hot and creamy when you woke up in the cool weather morning. I, personally, like to drink hot chocolate when the weather is getting cold in winter season. Creamy, tasty, warm drink, and smell really . . . GREAT!
“The better quality chocolate you get, the better taste of Hot Chocolate will be.”
If you get better quality of chocolate, you will get better taste of Hot Chocolate. The main ingredient of this menu is chocolate and Cocoa powder. I use Organic 100% of Cocoa for Dark Chocolate and Organic Cocoa powder. It is a bit more expensive but it worth the price to spend.
